Congratulations Stuart Neville!

Lots of good things are happening in Irish crime writing at present. My favourite from the 2009 crop of novels was Stuart Neville's excellent debut The Twelve (published in the US as The Ghosts of Belfast). The NY Times had it on their list of top 5 crime novels of 2009 and just a few days ago The LA Times awarded it the Best Mystery/Thriller Prize! 

I heartily recommend reading this immediately!
